>> it time now for a check of the headlines. new doubts on whether a multibillion missile defense system in europe will serve its purpose. and they are highlighting. the chicago community . hadia pentleton performed in the inauguration event and kill would by a stray bullet in a suspected gang dispute. >> the u.s. postal service feeling the affects of the wint or all post offices in new england is closed and mail delivery is suspended as many
roads are closed or impassable. >> staggering national debt and unstable economy and two of the issues that are brewing pessimism and uncertainty . president obama will provide clarity and hope on tuesday in what some are saying his important state of the union address . joining me john, co-or of who's counting. hey, john. let me ask you what is at stake here? >> the president is starting a term and this is the time when a second term president has the most political capitol. he doesn't have much time to pass it before grid lock and perhaps a looming reception slow him down. >> what is the order of proprietary - priority in the issues and which will not be part of the state of the union. >> the simplest issues and
clearly explained is gun control. you are either for or, against it in large part. the president will try for a quick vict rye and immigration reform. he doesn't show much interest in tax reform except corp corporate tax reform. those are the three top priorities. >> down the road two years from now in the midterm elections, that is a time that might not accomplish as much as the president can accomplish now . what is realistic for him in addressing congress and getting legislation passed? >> i think the president is taking a lot of moves to see if he can take back the house of representatives in 2014. that was never done by an incumbent president. in the meantime he will push to protect the entitlement programs he defended in his
naul -- innothingeral address . raise taxes in exchange for spending restraint. but the most important issue and the one that will define the president's political capitol will be gun control. after the new town shooting he had concern. if he can't pass the gun control he will enter the other battles weakened. >> let's talk about sequestitration the automatic defense cuts in particular. do you think that the president will address that, because he did mention when he spoke on friday that leon paneta was against the cuts and weaken strength around the world. how can he put that in the state of the union. >> he will say to the republicans sitting in front of him it is it up to you as to whether or not you want to
defend the country. he willhat gauntlet down. we have rearrange the cuts later if they come to a deal in which the president surrendered domestic spending cuts. they can adjust the man power programs. the president will try to make the republicans look like the bad guys . the question is whether the public buys that or wants a nuanced approach. >> including immigration and the issues you raised as likely to be part of the state of the union on tuesday. what about the economy in general? what do you expect the president to report? there seems to be some growth, we have so many millions of people out of work? >> the central premise of the inaugural address was to grow
a responsible middle class. the average median income went down 10 percent in real terms since 2009. looking at economic growth it is 2 percent or less. that is less than half we saw in the 1980s 1990s . so i thinks president's big challenge will be that we want to be a vibrant middle class. the problem is, i don't think that anything that the president is proposing is changing much from the policiless we tried in the last four years and the middle class is struggling more than it has been. >> john, i appreciate you coming in. thank you soy much. -- so much. >> kelly. >> and jamie, the snow is coming and haint stopped yet. we'll tell you about the details in the northeast . a look at conditions right now and what we can expect when it
